Part Two Of Our Exclusive Interview With 'Teen Mom 2' Star Kailyn Lowry. She Dishes On Her Co-Stars, Jo's Rap Career and Why She Almost Quit Twitter!
Yesterday, we first caught up with Kailyn Lowry from Teen Mom 2 and she filled us in on where her relationship stands with her baby daddy Jo Rivera and of course, we let her gush about her new husband Javi Marroquin.
In part two of our exclusive interview with Kailyn, she talks about the girls on the show (she went to Leah Messer's wedding and texts with Jenelle Evans), what she is scared for the world to see this season and how things stand with her family—including her mom.
And of course, we couldn't resist but to ask her about Jo's burgeoning rap career! You're welcome...
OK!: Do you keep in touch with any of the other girls from your season?
Kailyn Lowry: If there's a specific situation going on that any one of us can relate to, we'll usually talk to the other one. Jenelle will text me a lot with stuff she has going on and how I deal with things. Leah, I'm the closest with because I went to her wedding to Jeremy and we vacationed together this summer. I'm planning on going up there in March just to see her again. I think we all have a bond between just being mothers and being on the show together. It's nice to have them to fall back on if we need the support.
OK!: Have you talked to Leah since she's had the baby? Do you know how she is doing?
KL: I haven't. I don't know for sure. It's never been confirmed. I've only heard rumors and I don't want to bother her at this time. You know what I mean? I haven't talked to her—maybe when she announces it--when it's not just rumor, I'll talk to her about it.
OK!: What are some things that have surprised you the most or you know, stuck out to you the most about the other girls when you watch them on the show?
KL: Because we get together for the reunions and stuff, I feel like I'm not shocked by anything.
OK!: How is Jenelle doing? She's had a lot of craziness going on and you know, have you been able to be there for her while this happens?
KL: Yeah. Like I said, she'll text me if she needs anything or just wants to talk. Whenever she talks to me, she's just getting advice and stuff and she seems fine. I try not to follow anything online that's going on with them just because I know if there was something going on, they could talk to me. I don't really want to talk to them about stuff that's going from the Internet just because half of it isn't true. But when Jenelle talks to me, she’s usually in a good place. I hope that everything works out for her.
OK!: Going in to season four, what are you most nervous for people to see?
KL: Well, the fight with Javi that is sort of the trailer—that I have like anxiety about.
OK!: Do you think it's going to reopen the wound when you see it on TV together?
KL: Javi and I are way past it. It's the people who don't know that we're past it. I'm already getting bashed online and on Twitter. That's more or less what I'm worried about. Javi and I know that we are way past it so that's the good thing. I'm happy towards the end when Javi and I get engaged and stuff, so I'm ready for people to see that.
OK!: When you have these people online that are bashing you, how do you not let that affect you—because it's your life they’re bashing, it’s not like you’re playing a character.
KL: To be honest, some things really don't bother me. Some things, though, I'm like, ‘This person really does not know what they are talking about.’ Other times, the way certain people will word things will really set me off. Like last night somebody from a show on VH1 was tweeting nasty things about me. It makes me nuts sometimes. I contemplate deleting my Twitter. I contemplate deleting my Instagram. But, at the end of the day I think back and you know, in two years, in three years, I'm going to be so normal and everyone is going to forget who I am, and none of the other people who bash me or talk crap about me are going to matter.
OK!: Would you stay on for season five?
KL: That would be awesome if it went to a season five. That would be great. We are still in limbo so I'm not sure what will happen. It would be nice to have a season five.
OK!: Everyone wants to know what you think about Jo's rap career?
KL: I get that question all the time. I mean at first, I was like, ‘This is a joke!’ But, as hard as it is now for other people to accept him as a rapper because he came from Teen Mom 2, he does have really good lyrics if he sits down and writes. If that's what he wants to do, I'm going to support him. It wouldn't be my first pick for him if I got to pick, but I can't really do much but support him, you know?
OK!: Does Isaac have any of his dad’s rapping genes?
KL: Oh, no. No, we're not going to go down that road. He's got to be a lawyer or a doctor or something.
OK!: Are you still in touch with your family from Texas? Will they be at your wedding?
KL: I still talk to my sisters. I still talk to my aunt. They’re actually going to be at Javi’s graduation with me, but I have not talked to my dad since 16 and Pregnant.
OK!: And what about your mom? Have you guys repaired your relationship at all?
KL: Oh, no. My mom is an addict. They don't show that on the show and people will always ask me why I don't talk to my mom, you need to repair it, she's your only mom. Well, no. I don't need to take on her problems too. I haven't seen her since I can't even tell you when. She's never been to any of Isaac's birthday parties. So no, I haven't talked to her. I don't know where she lives. I don't know where she works. I don't even have her cell phone number or anything and I'm happy that way.
